9. Chapter 9

I kept seeing Zayn look at me from the corner of my eyes and it made me have a weird feeling in my stomach. It felt like butterflies, but I didn't want it to be. I shook the feeling from my head and returned my attention to the movie that was happening on the huge TV that was in front of me. I didn't really like horror movies and this one wasn't really helping. 

"DON'T GO IN THE FUCKING CLOSET!" Niall yelled at the tv whilst throwing a pillow at it. My face was buried behind my hands in fear of what was going to pop out next. "AH SHIT!" All of the boys screamed, causing me to scream and jump up. Zayn looked at me and laughed and realized he was looking at me and stopped laughing. 
"I have to go." I said arubptly and stood up. Harry grabbed my wrist causing me to turn around.
"Whyyyyyy?" Louis complained. I looked at Zayn and then back to Louis.
"It's getting late." I replied, hoping they would just let me go.
"It's only 10!" Niall said, jumping up and blocking me from running up the stairs.
"Niall please?" I gave him my best puppy-dog eyes and he rolled his. 
"Fine. But call me in the morning." He winked at me and walked back to where the boys were.
"Stop flirting with her." Liam hissed at Niall. Awkward, I thought. 

"Hey love, you're home early." My mum said. She was sitting in the kitchen sipping a cup of tea and reading a magazine.
"I know, I just wanted enough sleep before soccer." I lied, the real reason was to get away from Zayn.
"Okay, good night love." She smiled at me and I went upstairs.
Why was he looking at me every 5 minutes from the corner of his eyes? It was so uncomfortable, but it put a string of hope into my mind. To top it all off before I drifted to sleep, he freaking was laughing with me and then realized that it was me who he was laughing with and stopped. I had to forget about this right now. 
"Sweetie, it's time to wake up." My mum said sweetly as she shook my shoulder to wake me up. I groaned and rolled over. I stuffed my face into my pillow wanting another hour of sleep at least. 
"Alexis, you don't have a choice. We have to leave in half an hour." My mum laughed and pulled my duvet off my bed. I started shivering and then grinned into my pillow as I thought about bugging my mum.
"Oh no! We're entering the arctic!" I yelled and jumped up to snatch the duvet out of her hands.
